In the morning, I landed only one though I moved lots of trout by sight fishing with Doug's Home Invader.
Though I didn't have a flat even on this most shocked wheel. It seemed the rim would be distorted by the shock. Tire shop suggest me to put a spare tire while keeping this as spare on my way home.
Since I backed into something, this was really "OMG". Muffler was bent like a hair-pin. They cut it off for the better flow....of course.
Now I had to keep my bed dry as much as I could. I dropped by a hardware store and bought a tarp and duct tape to make it through temporarily. This quick patch actually worked to against the winds of Livingston and driving all through.
I barely went back to Armstrong's 3:30pm. I saw positive and constant rises for Spring baetis. It stopped at 5pm, which told me that I must have missed the best insect factory situation on the most ideal day due to the accident. I barely salvaged the day with a streamer.
But everyone I talked to told me how lucky I was. And I have to agree though I was totally down and sad that the accident happened during my trip.
- First I didn't get severely injured.
- Second, I didn't involve other people.
- Third I didn't fall into the river.
- Forth my truck got only a few cosmetic damages (I made home without any troubles).
Right now, I have just cleaned the mess in the bed and figured out to fix tire and window just in my town. I might be experiencing a light whiplash on my neck.......
